3 stars-- Blaze of Memory (Psy-Changeling #7) by Nalini Singh

Blaze of Mystery was a bit of a mixed read for me. There were parts of the storyline I really enjoyed but others dragged as Dev tried to resist his desires for Katya. A woman left broken on his doorstep and who posed a very real threat to the organization he runs in order to keep his people safe.



Alright, so, I liked both Dev and Katya. The two were an interesting pairing and I liked them as individual people. Dev has a connection to metals and fights to keep it from hardening his heart too much. And Katya is basically a sleeper agent. Broken and used by her people.

It took me a while to get on board with their romantic connection but by the end I was all in and grooving with these two. And whew. They could sure heat things up!

The plot was where I had a bit more trouble. There's a LOT going on. Danger and the unknown, threats from many directions including themselves. It was a bit too chaotic and I felt like I was missing things. And even with all the goings on parts still dragged for me. While it pulled together in the end I really would have liked a more focused storyline.

I will say. The ending gave the book a boost for me. It was intense and harrowing. These two earned their happily ever after that's for sure. While it wasn't my favorite from the series Blaze of Memory was still a decent read and it pulled together a few pieces of the series which is always a good thing. Hopefully the next will be more my style.

A woman without a past becomes the pawn of the man who controls her future...

Dev Santos discovers her unconscious and battered, with no memory of who she is. All she knows is that she's dangerous. Charged with protecting his people's most vulnerable secrets, Dev is duty-bound to eliminate all threats. It's a task he's never hesitated to complete...until he finds himself drawn to a woman who might prove to be the enemy's most insidious weapon yet.

Stripped of her memories by a shadowy oppressor and programmed to carry out cold-blooded murder, Katya Haas is fighting desperately for her sanity. Her only hope is Dev. But how can she expect to gain the trust of a man who could very well be her next target? For in this game, one must die...
